1.6. Summary

In this chapter, you learned about challenges common to software development. You saw how this prompted the evolution in software engineering that led to Agile ALM. You also learned what Agile ALM is for and what its features are.

The evolution of software engineering has moved from a cumbersome, fragmented approach to a more comprehensive, lean, integrated, crosscutting discipline that supports the whole development process. ALM evolved from software configuration management; it’s a comprehensive activity spanning the entire development lifecycle, from requirements engineering to maintenance and production, iterating over those phases continuously. It can be understood as a continuous, comprehensive task that incorporates several management disciplines, including build management, release management, configuration management, test management, quality management, and integration management. This integrated approach is called applied change management. The goal is to provide high-quality, functionally and technically consistent software. Integration also means the ALM infrastructure provides a single view of the truth as opposed to multiple views.
